Now for the update:
The Move Forward Party member of Parliament identified as Mr. Sirin Sanguansin issued an official statement on Thursday (June 29th). He posted a message on his Facebook page stating “I am very sorry for the incident. First, I was late to address the incident and clarify the situation because I recently had a minor accident with head injuries. I apologize to Ms. A (fictitious name), to her family, and to all the people who have supported me.”
“I am now going into a legal process with police and am under investigation by the Move Forward Party. I am ready to accept any punishment for what I have done,” Mr. Sirin added.
“Some of the news reported about the incident is not true. Neither myself nor Ms. A have given any information to any reporter, only police and the Move Forward Party.” Mr. Sirin explained.
“I am very regretful and apologize to everyone who was affected in this incident,” Mr. Sirin noted.
TPN media notes that Sirin did not directly clarify what he did or did not do, leaving that as a matter for police and the Move Forward Party. The Move Forward Party did not release a formal statement as of press time, only that the situation was under review by senior party leaders.
